Bild: Milan take concrete steps towards appointing Ragnick in revolutionary role

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are seriously interested in the idea of bringing Ralf Rangnick to the club as early as January, according to a report.

German outlet Bild – as cited by Goal Italia – are claiming that the Rossoneri have taken concrete steps towards the hiring of Rangnick.

Milan would like the German to start officially in June, and they would like him to hold a role never seen before in Italy and similar to the one he had at RB Leizpig: he would be both the head coach and sporting director.

The report continues by claiming that Milan would like Rangnick to start unofficially in January, with an ad hoc role as a consultant, to begin to understand the needs of the club ahead of his official start.

Rangnick’s position is not yet clear, though he has not rejected the idea just yet, and the fact he has been approached by Everton and Bayern Munich before suggests he is open to leaving his current role as head of Red Bull sporting operations.

We are currently at the exploratory stage of the negotiations, the report concludes, but it seems like Elliott Management know the man they want to spearhead their revolution.
